ASSIGNMENT 1 MATH 303, FALL 2011 Instructions: Do at least 3 points from each section and at least 10 points total . Up to 12 points will be graded, but your maximum score is 10. If you hand in more than 12 points please indicate which ones you want graded, otherwise the first 12 will be graded. Manipulation (M1) (1 point) Simplify the following set {{{∅} , {∅}} , {∅ , {∅}} , {{∅}}} (M2) (1 point) Let A and B be sets. Show that A B implies A B = B . (M3) (1 point) Let A and B be sets. Show that A B = B implies A B . (M4) (1 point) Let C = {{∅} , {∅ , {∅}} , ∅} . What is S C ? (M5) (1 point) Build {{∅} , {{∅}} , {∅ , {∅}}} out of , pairs, and unions. Pure Math (P1) (4 points) The exercise from Halmos page 10. (P2) (3 points) Using only the empty set, pairs, and unions can you form sets with
